Requesting a decision on an advance on benefits

Are you waiting for a decision on your application for social assistance benefit (bijstandsuitkering) or supplementary income provision for the elderly (aanvullende inkomensvoorziening ouderenAIO)? Have you not yet received an advance, or is the amount of the advance too low? Then you can apply to your province for a provision of immediate assistance (voorziening onverwijlde bijstand). The province will then decide whether you get an advance or that the amount received will be increased.

Find out about how this works in your (future) place of residence.
